Charles Rayne Kruger (29 January 1922 - 2002) was a South African author and property developer.
Charles Rayne Kruger was born on 29 January 1922 in at Queenstown, in the Eastern Cape, the son of an unmarried 17-year-old daughter of a British Army officer. As his father had disappeared, his mother married Victor Kruger, a Johannesburg estate agent. He was educated at Jeppe High School, and Witwatersrand University.
Kruger's first wife was the actress Nan Munro, a widow, 16 years older than him, with three children. They later divorced, and he married the restaurateur, chef, and television presenter/broadcaster Prue Leith. They had a son, the Conservative MP Danny Kruger, and adopted a Cambodian daughter.
